God’s Treasures to Inherit

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:6

I was reading about a man named Vido Miti. He was a Spanish student in Barcelona, and he was working on his Ph.D. in philosophy. Vido was in the library blowing the dust off some of the old books of philosophy, and he found a book that had been in the library for no one knows how long. As he was going through the book, he found some paper inside it that he opened up and read. It was the philosopher’s last will and testament.

It said, “Whoever finds this in this book will inherit my estate,” because the writer didn’t think anybody would read his old, dry philosophy book. But there it was. Vido Miti took that to the authorities. They read it and said, “It is valid,” and he was awarded $250,000, the full estate of the old philosopher. I wonder how many treasures are in God’s Word that God wants us to inherit, but we’ve never blown the dust off the Bible.
